Figure Out Your Child's Learning Style

It is important to recognize that not all children learn the same way. Each child has their own learning style or combination of styles. As a parent, it is necessary to figure out your child's learning style in order to find ways to keep your child engaged and improving. If your child is an auditory learner, The Tutoring Center in Troy can help you figure out what methods your child works with best.

What is an Auditory Learner?

Auditory learners prefer to listen to information rather than read it. They retain things they hear better than information they read. They tend to prefer oral presentations, speeches and lectures over other learning methods. Videos and audio books can prove to be useful useful tools as they study.

Using Taped Material to Learn

Auditory learners get more out of listening exercises. Taping notes and listening to them can be a more effective study method than reading notes and highlighting important parts. Incorporating beats and rhymes with the material your child is listening to can help them better retain the information.

Learning to Read

If your child is starting to learn to read, focus on the sounds of words more than on the way they look. Rhyming games and word games can prove to be more effective in helping them learn to read. Sit with your child and read out loud. Listening and sounding the words out will help them more than reading quietly.

Listen and Discuss

Auditory learners like to listen, but they also like to discuss what they have listened to. Encourage your child to talk about what they have learned and discuss important themes with them. Have your child put their thoughts into words in order to discuss important ideas. Have them discuss their ideas and also listen to those of others. The Tutoring Center in Troy can provide your child with a great learning environment no matter their learning style.
